Stolen Children | Residential School survivors speak out

We are a culturally rich community of First Nation, Inuit and Métis peoples. Some of us have had ancestors living in the area for thousands of years. Many of us are new to Ottawa, which has the third fastest growing urban Aboriginal population in Canada. Culturalbased programs and services are key to the health of our community
